The Lighthouse March 21, 22, 28, & 29 at the Aquarium of the Pacific

Based on a true story, The Lighthouse is a haunting opera with an atmospheric score by the lauded English composer Peter Maxwell Davies.  Part detective mystery and part ghost story, The Lighthouse tells the tale of three officers who were sent to relieve three lighthouse keepers, only to find they had vanished into thin air. The story unfolds with a mix of courtroom testimony and fantastical flashbacks, as the officers nervously pass the time by singing songs. But out of the fog, their past emerges to taunt them. All performances of The Lighthouse are at the Aquarium’s new cutting-edge, high-definition technology space with a breathtaking 32-foot-tall 180-degree arc projection wall.

Dream Variation

The final UnGala of the season. You won't want to miss this!

This Black History Month, join us for a celebration of works by composers of African descent throughout history and some of opera's most exciting Black artists of today. The musical feast will be accompanied by equally delicious pairings of upscale comfort foods and fine wines. We will explore the expression of the Black experience from musicians in other centuries compared with those of today by pairing classical pieces with poetry, hip-hop, and soul selections from this century that reflect similar themes and emotional content. This will be a one-of-a-kind showcase of wonderful talent and rich history that is not to be missed!
